Avocado toast is still the most popular food trend right now. The green miracle fruit has become an indispensable part of the breakfast plate and has now even developed into street food. In the US, you can easily charge 15 dollars for a simple breakfast toast. That doesn’t have to be the case, of course. The hype is not surprising, however, since avocados are said to be particularly rich and healthy. You can find out whether this is really true in this article.
Healthy superfruit with lots of nutrients
Hardly any other fruit contains as many healthy nutrients as the popular butter fruit avocado. Avocados are a good source of healthy and unsaturated fat. They also contain a lot of vitamins and minerals (vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, B vitamins, copper and potassium) as well as fiber and antioxidants.
Since avocados are full of rich nutrients, they are ideal as a dietary supplement, especially for pregnant women. Avocados are also good for digestion and create a long-lasting feeling of satiety, making them the perfect diet food and helping with weight loss.
The basic recipe for avocado toast
The basic recipe for a classic avocado toast is always the same:
- ripe avocado
- Lemon juice
- salt and pepper
In fact, that’s it! The avocado is lightly mashed with a fork and seasoned with a splash of lemon juice and salt and pepper. It tastes best with a toasted slice of bread. The basic recipe can be refined further as you wish.
Avocado toast in many variations
The basic recipe is often refined with chili and olive oil. You can often see the combination with an egg – regardless of whether it is a fried egg, scrambled egg, or poached egg. Other popular supplements are spicy Sriracha sauce, chickpeas, feta, salty bacon, or fresh tomatoes.
Ripe and storage of avocados
You can tell whether an avocado is ripe with the pressure test. If the surface gives way, it is a sign of a ripe avocado. However, if the fruit is already very soft to the touch all over, this indicates that the avocado has brown spots on the inside.
An unopened avocado can be stored at room temperature. Half a fruit should be stored in the refrigerator with the stone covered in cling film.
